                                                                      Andersen’s famous fairy tale about the little mermaid is full of poetry and imagination
                                                                      After rescuing the prince from drowning, the little mermaid falls hopelessly in love with him. But the prince decides to marry another. Andersen's fairy tale is the most famous love story in world literature. Dirk Steinhöfel tells the story in pictures that are at once enchanting and disturbing to reveal without a trace of kitsch the dark abysses that so often go hand in hand with longing and love. A dream picture book for adults as well as children. A new and fascinating interpretation of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic as a dark fairy tale, oppressively beautiful and disturbingly powerful.
